Starter Course - BlackMood Openings

Starter Course - BlackMood Openings

Champions, hopefully, you’ve learned the WhiteMood openings, enjoying it and having lots of fun. 

Now it’s time to create an opening repertoire for Black!
While they’re many fine openings, GM Avetik offers you a one, that is not only
✅Strong and ✅Fundamental,
but also,
✅And the most important - It doesn’t require memorization of long variations!  

Additionally, with learning just 2 openings(!!!), you’ll be ready to fight against each White’s 1st moves - 1.e4, 1.d4, 1.c4, 1.Nf3, 1.g3, 1.b3… 

Yes! You’ll not need to learn lots of different openings. Just 2!

We’ll play French and Dutch!
But not French Defense and Dutch Defense, as they’re called in the theory.
We’ll play French (1.e4 e6) and Dutch attacks (1.d4 e6 with f5 next)!

That’s true, we play with Black pieces, but we’re not going to play passively and choose some defensive openings getting boring positions. 
Instead, we’re going to fight for the initiative from the very beginning. 

Also, we’re not going to main variations, deeply covered in the theory, where you’ll need to memorize long variations…
As Avetik used these openings all his life, he found lots of interesting outside-box thinking variations, which are not covered in the theory or books.

And in this course, he shares with you lots of interesting new ideas, that will surprise and take your opponents out of preparation from the very beginning, giving you a big practical advantage. 

You’ll learn all the ideas, strategies and plans of your openings, that’ll help you to enjoy your game and have lots of fun.

P. S.
At the end of the course, you’ll learn about GreyMood Openings!
In case, sometimes you don’t want to play 1.e4 with White pieces, or you want to surprise your opponents, you’ll see how you can put in action the BlackMood openings with an additional one tempo and keep your opening repertoire very simple. 

Now, let’s dive into the unexplored world of French and Dutch attacks and see why we’ll not use the “defense” word in this course, targetting the opponent’s King all the time!
